Fives at the Bronz Zoo
odd residents who live more or less harmoniously near the Bronx
River makes the Bronx Zoo the largest metropolitan zoo in the United
States. Covering over 265 acres (107 ha) the parklands and habitats
that make up the zoo’s naturalistic feel is a credit to the
Zoo and surely kinder on the animals than some of its competitors.
Congo Gorilla Forest, an African rain forest that’s home to
more than 20 lowland gorillas, the Jungle World, an Asian tropical
rain forest that’s home to gibbons, tapir, langurs and other
Asian species. If you had to live in Zoo you would have your name
down for a Bronz Zoo enclosure in an instant.
One thing to
'bear' in mind. Despite all that fur not all the animals like to
go out in the cold. Some of the animals, particularly the ones used
to warmer climes, may choose to stay indoors during cold weather.
York Pass will give you free entry but you will have
to leave at closing time. The Bronz Zoo is open every day of the
year with a variety of indoor and outdoor exhibits.

all of New York from only the second floor of the Empire State Building..
How do you
get to see all of New York from only the second floor of the Empire
State Building? Quickly is the answer. Faster than a speeding yellow
cab. Higher than a bird. This is New York's Skyride - an aerial
tour of New York without leaving the ground - well just a little,
you are on the second floor don't forget. You will experience New
York from above, New York at street level and then Skyride really
gets down to business. Safely strapped into your specially-equipped,
motion-simulated, big- screen theater seat you will get to know
New York in a big hurry. Think you know this city. You aint seen
nothing until you have visited the second floor of the Empire State.
Bring a friend. Forget the popcorn.
York Pass will give you free entry to the Skyride and
the Observation Level of the Empire State Building.

25 Skate at
Wollman Rink located in Central Park has a fun, relaxed atmosphere
and is friendly towards people who fall over. There is a snack bar,
lockers and you can hire skates. The Wollman Rink is very popular
so it is advisable to avoid weekends if you can. In the warmer months
it is still worth rolling up to the rink as the blades give way
This is very
New York and a wonderful way to enjoy the city skyline. Try not
to bump into anyone unless they are good looking and/or very soft.
